Homecoming. Once the game began it was all Eagles with a dominating performance. CSCS exploited the Panthers’ lack of defense. They scored in a variety of ways with Marion not knowing what hit them.

By the end of the first half, the Eagles took a commanding lead of 45-6 going into halftime. In the start of the second half, the Eagles continued to dominate. CSCS kept up the great performance, continuing to force turnovers and be all over the ball.
Despite allowing one more touchdown in the game, the Eagles were able to extend the lead to pull off a 51-12 victory. The Eagles captured their first win of the season with the leaderships of Freshman Kirkland Pugh and Senior and Homecoming King De’Anthony Hampton. “It was a success, we’re proud of it. We needed this win to give us motivation for the season.” said Hampton during the post game season.
Pugh also commented about the victory: “This is a big confident builder. We’re going to keep trying, play hard, keep striving and make tackles to get better.” Eagles Head Coach Blake Hall explained about the season so far: “It’s been tough, we have been playing some teams and we’re a young team. These boys have been working their tales off. It’s good for them to finally get a win and get to enjoy it especially at homecoming. I’m really proud of them, they did a great job.”
